have very strong contender in representative tim scott, nick mulvaney, barrett, nathan valentine, haley's deputy chief of staff pits. what do you think is the current horse race here? >> it's tough because nikki haley marches to the beat of her own drum and could throw a curveball. with that, conservatives, a number have made clear that they prefer tim scott. he has a very strong story to tell. he would be fective and i think that, you know, this is a topic of discussion throughout the day, senators who are appointed and then try to get elected, don't always have the greatest level of success. i don't think that would be the case here. i think tim scott would do well and get elected. but there are other options. i think it is going to -- a couple competing forces. there's senator lindsey graham who would love to see his primary be avoided, nikki haley could buy herself political help with what she does. those will be the main factors. >> thank you so much, maggie haberman. massive protests as the political crisis gross in egypt today. we're live in cairo next. plus, tragic news out of l

appointed tim scott. >> which is very interesting first african american senator to represent this state for south carolina. and his seat, he will vacate that as early as january 2 that would open up the house seat which is whole other story. which is so fascinating if you'll have fully lex for that seat in 2014. also in 2014 senator lindsey graham is up for re-election. we don't know for sure if he's going to run, but conservatives have been challenging him in pry mother for a long time. they don't view him as conservative enough. which jim was a very conservative senator all in favor of conservative primaries getting the more moderate republicans. this is going to be two very interesting, very competitive races in a state that's not necessarily very competitive in the national landscape. >> ifill: who wants their job, who wants lindsey graham's job and who wants tim scott's job? >> now that tim scott is appointed, it's obviously very early to tell but i don't think he'll get as much as primary challeng he's very -- pretty well regarded among conservatives in the state. lindsey graham
